Singapore, April 18 (Xinhua-ANI): The Singapore Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) has arrested four suspected drug traffickers, one suspected drug abuser and seized almost two kilograms of heroin estimated to be worth about 230,000 U.S. dollars.

The CNB conducted an operation against a drug trafficking syndicate earlier this week. A total of approximately 1 kilogram of heroin, 5 grams of 'Ice' and 2,550 Singapore dollars (2,023 U.S. dollars) in cash were seized in the operation, local TV Channel NewsAsia reported on Wednesday.

Four suspects - three males and one female - were arrested in the operation. They are Singaporeans, aged between 27 and 50 years old.

The three men are being investigated for drug trafficking offenses. The female has been sent to a drug rehabilitation center.

On Tuesday, at about 4.30 p.m., the CNB and ICA (Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore) conducted a joint operation at the Woodlands Checkpoint and stopped a 23-year-old male Malaysian riding a Malaysia registered motorcycle for checks.

The officers found two bundles wrapped in black masking tape in the motorcycle's front fender. The bundles were later found to contain about 920 grams of heroin.

The man is being investigated for drug importation. If convicted, he may face the death penalty. (Xinhua-ANI)
